  1. Re FRFR, there are many to choose from, and people have made almost any of them work from what I’ve read. I tried the QSC K10 and found I could not get rid of a low mid bump. Highs were harsh too, but that’s my experience. Ended up with a PowerCab 112+, which I like better. Note that the helix sounds best cranked up - I forget the technical name of that effect. Good luck!
  2. Hey Folks. I find myself using the three Solo models for much of my cover band gigging, but I'm not happy with my saturated lead (and sometimes rhythm) tone. I like the level of distortion in the OD channel, but it's harsh in the highs. I love how the crunch gets dirty, but the bottom end is flubby for those low leads. Any tips from you Solo lovers? Thanks!!
  3. Brilliant discovery, Mike. Question: Did you try a factory reset?
  4. Hi Folks. I'm having a strange problem with my LT. When using the BANK UP and BANK DOWN footswitch buttons on the left, I've sometimes seen display weirdness as I scroll. One time the bottom row was empty except for one preset, and at practice last night the bottom row showed all the same preset (see pic). Has anyone seen this before? Is there a fix? Thank you. Version: 3.11.0 ("Your Helix LT device is up to date with firmware version 3.11.") Mode: Performance View Global Settings: Footswitches: Stomp Select: Touch. Preset Mode Switches: Snap/Stomp. Snapshot Mode Switches: Auto Return. Up/Down Switches: Banks. Swap Up/Down: Off
  5. Hi Folks. Just now getting to trying this feature out. As others pointed out, the LT seems limited regarding the leftmost two (and rightmost 2?) footswitch buttons. Is it true that we cannot assign to these? If so, why should that be? Hardware-wise, is it any different conceptually that the non-LT? Thank you. (P.S. Note that HX Edit does let me assign in the Command Center window...)
  6. Sorry to hear about your trouble, tdawgg :-/ That might be something different from mine. Good luck.
  7. Worked! I should have recorded before and after settings - I wonder which of them made the difference. Something to do with the digital out I bet. Nice work L6.
  8. Hi Folks. I just updated my Helix LT from 2.8 to 2.90, and as I said, playing through my still-new-to-me Powercab 112 Plus doesn't sounds as crisp (nor quite as loud - based on the input signal LED) afterwards. The update apparently reset my global settings (I'm using digital out to the PC+) so I had to go in and set the one that turns off the big volume control for that output. Any ideas what might have happend? Thanks!
  9. Hi Everyone, I'm liking my PC+ after a month of trying it out at home. (No practice or gigs due to COVID-19.) I've noticed that almost all my presets have a too-strong resonance around 120Hz. It's annoying and I wonder if this is how it is with the PC design. Again, I'm in a small-ish room, so maybe it's better on stage. I'm using the parametric eq to subtract between 4 and 8 db depending on the amp/cab. I'm using the PC+ in FRFR mode, modeling everything in my Helix LT. Love to hear your thoughts!

  11. I’m really enjoying my Powercab 112 Plus at home. It’s got a nice punch in flat mode. I have a Helix LT.
  12. Hey Folks, Digging my Powecab 112 Plus (haven't been able to try out side the bedroom - no band practices or gigs), and I'm exploring controlling the master volume via MIDI. I believe this is an undocumented feature, but I found mention elsewhere and I'm wondering if anyone is doing this. Here's the post ( https://line6.com/support/topic/36395-powercab-plus-midi-control-with-helix-midi/?tab=comments#comment-313560 ): I have no MIDI experience, but I'm hoping it's straightforward to tell the expression pedal to send a volume parameter message of some kind to control between a range. But if that's a global range (say 0 is no sound and 100% is full volume), then it would be a hassle having to adjust each preset according to the venue... (Obviously I haven't thought this out very far.) Just curious your thoughts. Thanks!
  13. Much obliged, @amsdenj. That's what I was thinking. I guess I set the PC+ input with the Helix at -3dB so that the PC+ LED is green with a little yellow flashing, and then trust that the increase to 0dB will not be red? Or is it vice versa (set PC+ input level for 0dB)? I'm also going to post a question about using MIDI to control the PC+ master, as another possible option...
